Recently we were contacted by cycling adventurist, Knut Kitching to sponsor cycling caps for his upcoming ride in the Chilcotin region. It's a rugged mountainous area north of Vancouver, superb for the two-wheel mountain biking folks. We are proud of our handmade caps and it just felt right to sponsor two winter caps for their mini adventure. We would like to thank Knut and Skyler for their generous review of our L'enfer du Nord and Black Sheep wool winter caps... and for giving the caps a positive spin in the Chilcotins!


Read their review here.


'Richard - we are wearing them all the time!

- Knut.
